Full, morello cherry, ruby red, good intensity. Ripe autumn red and purple fruit and raspberries. Rich, deep and balanced. Well structured on the palate with plenty of fine, lingering rich fruit and a lively note of tannin.
Hand harvested, principally from our vineyards in Rioja Alavesa. Following a short pre -fermentation maceration, fermentation was done at a controlled temperature to retain primary varietal aromas. The young wine was transferred to 225 litre american oak casks, where it remained for between 12 and 14 months, regularly racked, to create great finesse. The wine was then lightly fined using egg whites before bottling.
